A fun, easy, and inexpensive way to make your own file-folder games is by using Wrapping Paper!
- Wrapping paper - try to find some that has pictures of things you can easily cut out.
- Glue stick or double-stick tape
Here's what you do:
- Figure out what kind of file folder game you want to make with the wrapping paper you have.
- Cut out the pictures, glue or tape them on the file folder. Glue or tape the corresponding ones to cardstock.
